Judging is the most fun they can have without taking their clothes off...

Because ONTD needs more Panic At The Disco...

MTV2 & Time Warner Cable hosted a Rock Battle for the best 5 bands from NYC to battle it out for a spot on the Rockband Live tour opening for Panic At The Disco, Dashboard Confessional, Plain White T's and the Cab. It took place Monday night, Sept 29th, at Webster Hall. Judging the bands were Brendon Urie and Ryan Ross from Panic, Chris Carrabba from Dashboard and I think the other judge worked for MTV2. The band who won was Lights Resolve, they were fantastic.

Fun & failure both start out the same way

Memo to actors: if you find yourself starring in a show alongside Jerry O'Connell, don't expect to be employed for long. Mr. Rebecca Romijn (O'Connell de-Stamos'ed her) will find himself on the short-end of the sitcom stick for the second straight time, with Entertainment Weekly reporting Fox has decided to cancel his Do Not Disturb vehicle after just three episodes.
The move comes as no surprise to anyone, given the absolutely abysmal reviews the half-hour hotel-set sex comedy received (O'Connell's second low-rated show in a row after the ABC misfire Carpoolers). The great thing about critically reviled projects is it often inspires critics to write some rather entertaining pieces. Take a look at some highlights:

Chicago Tribune: "Every fall, there's at least one. A program so bad that it's not only unpleasant to watch, but it makes you fear for the future of network television. This year, that show is a "comedy" called 'Do Not Disturb.'"

Variety: "For comedy scribes and those who love them, be disturbed. Be very disturbed."

USA Today: "Like too many sitcoms these days, every joke in Disturb seems telegraphed, and every plot twist might as well come with flash cards...if you waste your time watching this flat dreck, you may never watch TV again."

The funny thing about Do Not Disturb (the only funny thing, it seems) is the show's producers actually apologized for making such shoddy television. In an open letter to the TV critics who so fiercely ravaged the show in their reviews, the producers admitted they deserved "all the criticism, the bad puns...and, yes, even the accusation that it very well could be the final nail in the multicamera sitcom’s coffin."

But it's hard to laugh at their disfortune when you actually find out much of the talent behind the show was responsible (in part) for the beloved Arrested Development. Abraham Higginbotham, Do Not Disturb's creator, was executive story editor for Arrested. Jason Bateman (aka Michael Bluth) even directed one of its episodes. We bet Higginbotham is thinking right about now one of Arrested's long-running jokes: "I've made a huge mistake."

Meanwhile, the TV deathwatch will move on in due time to claim new victims. NBC's low-rated Knight Rider may be next. Stay tuned...

Poor Jason :( Ok, i seriously need to get my ass off ontd and finish my work.

The future King of England, Scotland, Australia, Canada, New Zealand, etc. proud, mare has a J-O-B

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Kate Middleton has fired the latest salvo in her battle to persuade the nation that she isn't sitting around waiting for Prince William to pop a ring on her finger. The 26-year-old has posted a glossy picture of herself - the kind that one might expect to see in a FTSE 100 company annual report - on the web-site of her family business.

The photograph, taken at the headquarters of her parents' company, Party Pieces, which sells childrens' partyware over the internet, is accompanied by a glowing report of her business activities written by, none other, than her mother, Carole.

Miss Middleton, who has been dating the future king for more than five years, has been stung by suggestions that she is 'workshy'. The History of Art graduate has had just one part-time job as a buyer for fashion firm Jigsaw since graduating from St Andrew's alongside her royal paramour in June 2005.

The four day-a-week post was created especially for her so that she could work her schedule round that of the prince, but she still quit in November last year saying she needed some 'time to herself'.

Her apparent lack of employment since then has prompted increasing public debate and, it has been alleged, even caused the Queen to express her concern that William did not announce an engagement until his girlfriend had got a job.

However it seems that Waity Katey, as she has been dubbed, is determined to fight back. She now has what friends describe as a '9-5, five days a week' job working for her millionaire parents, Michael and Carole, who have built up an extremely successful internet-based business selling childrens' party goods.

HK star will not return to testify in sex photo case: report

HONG KONG (AFP) - The Hong Kong actor at the centre of a sex photos scandal involving female celebrities has refused to return to the city to testify in a trial linked to the saga, a report said Wednesday.

Edison Chen will not appear as a witness in the trial against a man who allegedly distributed photos across the Internet of Chen's sex acts with a string of female starlets, according to the South China Morning Post.

The refusal of Chen to return from the United States has stalled the trial of computer technician Sze Ho-chun, as the prosecution said it would have to apply for a higher court's permission to obtain evidence from the actor there.

Prosecutor Hayson Tse told a magistrates court that the permission would allow a Hong Kong judge to take evidence in the United States and assess the credibility of the Canadian-born star.

Tse said they had originally planned to deal with Chen's evidence by way of his witness statements. But the proposal was rejected by defence lawyers for Sze.

Explicit photographs of Chen with the stars were plastered across the Internet for weeks in February this year, causing a storm in this celebrity-obsessed city.

Sze was arrested in his computer store and pleaded not guilty to one count of obtaining access to a computer with a view of making dishonest gain for himself or another.

Chen's management company said the actor had promised to try his best to assist the investigation of the case but not to return to testify in court, the report added.

Third Eye Blind hype new album by having fans remix new tracks

Story is about a week old, but hasn't been posted here yet


Third Eye Blind Opens Up With Indaba
September 23, 2008 , 3:10 PM ET

Katie Hasty, N.Y.

Third Eye Blind is inviting fans to witness -- and even take part in -- the completion of its next album, "Ursa Major." The pop-rock group's first album in five years will be promoted through an extensive online portal via Indaba Music.

Through it, fans will get an insider look into the completion of "Ursa Major," due in early 2009 via the band's own imprint with distribution from Sony/RED.

Third Eye Blind will be updating fans via blogs and videos, as well as inviting readers to interact with the band by allowing user comments on song mixes, opening discussion boards and contests. The first competition is for readers to mix and add their own instrumental stems to the new song "Non-Dairy Creamer." Several other tracks will be previewed through the site.

Third Eye Blind rose to fame in the late 1990s with hits like "Semi-Charmed Life" and "Jumper." The band's last studio album was 2003's "Out of the Vein," released by Elektra.

The four-piece has two upcoming shows on its calendar: Sept. 27 at Stafford Lake Park in Novato, Calif., and Oct. 10 at Depaw University in Greencastle, Ind.

The new song sounds good instrumentally (based on how the remixes are piecing it together.) But the lyrics aren't anything to brag about. I don't mind Jenkins getting political, but turning "Young Gay Republicans!" into a chant is... odd.

'The Graysons' Are Coming to The CW

The CW is developing a series based on Batman sidekick Robin's pre-Caped Crusader days, reports Variety.

"Smallville" executive producers Kelly Souders and Brian Peterson, as well as "Supernatural" executive producer McG, are behind "The Graysons," which has landed a put pilot commitment at the network.

Just as "Smallville" focuses on Clark Kent in the years before he became Superman, "The Graysons" will follow the world of Dick "DJ" Grayson before he takes on the iconic Robin identity and aligns himself with Batman.

"The Graysons" is seen as a potential replacement for "Smallville" should that show end its run this season, which has been speculated. Should "Smallville" return next year, "The Graysons" might also make a strong companion piece.

In the one-hour "Graysons," which will be set in modern times, young DJ will face challenges involving first loves, young rivals and his family as he grows up. Souders and Peterson have come up with an original take on the character.

Source: ComingSoon.net

That Robin picture of Chris O'Donnell doesn't really have anything to do with the story...I just posted it as a reminder of how hot I used to be for him back in those days. Anyway, this show will probably be as craptacular as "Smallville" is, but if they cast a hot young thing to play Dick and show him wet and shirtless every week, it's guaranteed a season pass on my DVR.

Blind People Don't Want You to See "Blindness"

Blind people plan protests of movie, saying 'Blindness' paints them in worst possible light

Julianne Moore acting blind, in the feature film Blindness

By BEN NUCKOLS , Associated Press

September 30, 2008

BALTIMORE - Blind people quarantined in a mental asylum, attacking each other, soiling themselves, trading sex for food. For Marc Maurer, who's blind, such a scenario — as shown in the movie "Blindness" — is not a clever allegory for a breakdown in society.

Instead, it's an offensive and chilling depiction that Maurer fears could undermine efforts to integrate blind people into the mainstream.

"The movie portrays blind people as monsters, and I believe it to be a lie," said Maurer, president of the Baltimore-based National Federation of the Blind. "Blindness doesn't turn decent people into monsters."

Julianne Moore and Mark Ruffalo portraying blind "monsters" in feature film "Blindness"

The organization plans to protest the movie, released by Miramax Films, at 75 theaters around the country when it's released Friday. Blind people and their allies will hand out fliers and carry signs. Among the slogans: "I'm not an actor. But I play a blind person in real life."

The movie reinforces inaccurate stereotypes, including that the blind cannot care for themselves and are perpetually disoriented, according to the NFB.

"We face a 70 percent unemployment rate and other social problems because people don't think we can do anything, and this movie is not going to help — at all," said Christopher Danielsen, a spokesman for the organization.

"Blindness" director Fernando Meirelles, an Academy Award nominee for "City of God," was shooting on location Thursday and unavailable for comment, according to Miramax. The studio released a statement that read, in part, "We are saddened to learn that the National Federation of the Blind plans to protest the film `Blindness.'"

The NFB began planning the protests after seven staffers, including Danielsen, attended a screening of the movie in Baltimore last week. The group included three sighted employees.

"Everybody was offended," Danielsen said.

Based on the 1995 novel by Nobel Prize winner Jose Saramago, "Blindness" imagines a mysterious epidemic that causes people to see nothing but fuzzy white light — resulting in a collapse of the social order in an unnamed city. Julianne Moore stars as the wife of an eye doctor (Mark Ruffalo) who loses his sight; she feigns blindness to stay with her husband and eventually leads a revolt of the quarantined patients.

The book was praised for its use of blindness as a metaphor for the lack of clear communication and respect for human dignity in modern society.

Miramax said in its statement that Meirelles had "worked diligently to preserve the intent and resonance of the acclaimed book," which it described as "a courageous parable about the triumph of the human spirit when civilization breaks down."

Maurer will have none of it.

"I think that failing to understand each other is a significant problem," he said. "I think that portraying it as associated with blindness is just incorrect."

The protest will include pickets at theaters in at least 21 states, some with dozens of participants, timed to coincide with evening showtimes. Maurer said it would be the largest protest in the 68-year history of the NFB, which has 50,000 members and works to improve blind people's lives through advocacy, education and other ways.

The film was the opening-night entry at the Cannes Film Festival, where many critics were unimpressed.

After Cannes, Meirelles retooled the film, removing a voice-over that some critics felt spelled out its themes too explicitly.

Meirelles told The Associated Press at Cannes that the film draws parallels to such disasters as Hurricane Katrina, the global food shortage and the cyclone in Myanmar.

"There are different kinds of blindness. There's 2 billion people that are starving in the world," Meirelles said. "This is happening. It doesn't need a catastrophe. It's happening, and because there isn't an event like Katrina, we don't see."


Lil' Romeo Offers Up Lesson on Life in College

Rapper Lil' Romeo has only attended college for five weeks, but he's already learned a few lessons about surviving on campus.

"Lock your bike!" says the University of Southern California freshman, 19, who has had three expensive bikes stolen. "Now I just have a little $5 bike that hopefully no one will want."

As for jewelry, "I don't bring anything expensive to the dorms," he says. "I just sleep with my earrings on."

The rapper, who plays basketball as a point guard for the Trojans and plans to major in film production, also reveals a surprising taste in movies. "I love romantic comedies," he says. "[I like] Made of Honor and 27 Dresses. "And I just rented The Notebook!"

And just like any other freshman, Top Roman, cereal and Easy Mac crowd the kitchen counter tops of his dorm.

"I love college life," he says. "It's like a vacation."

His taste in movies is so cute lol.

Demi Lovato Opens Up About Being Bullied

Girls will be girls. And, as Demo Lovato knows, they can be all too cruel.

On Wednesday's The Ellen DeGeneres Show, the Disney star opens up about the bullying she endured in 7th grade – teasing that eventually prompted her to be home-schooled.

"I never really understood why [I was being bullied] until looking back," she says, noting that she was already a working actress – which made her an easy target. "I had a different lifestyle then everyone else."

Now the Camp Rock star hopes to use her fame to help other girls.

"I want to help with bullying," she says. "Because there are girls who can't just up and home-school and focus on their career."

DeGeneres was a sympathetic – and outspoken – audience. Bullying is "just so horrible ..." she says. "And somebody has to stop it. It goes on in schools for a lot of different reasons. That's really a shame."

sir ian

some good blind items

1) "This tweener star has always been known for television. Now she does films primarily. In the past year while doing a film, she was devastated emotionally over a breakup, and also trying to kick coke at the same time. About two weeks into filming, our actress tried to kill herself. Because the location was out of the country it was managed to be hush hushed. She then took about ten days off and continued filming. Her mom was brought in, and the actress seemed to recover. She also started using coke again, but made it through filming without any more incidents."

2) "This young heartthrob actor has many female admirers but he pays a high price for his good looks. He works out maniacally in the gym but can’t control his eating. He loves to eat in burger joints and in the fanciest restaurants so he’s cultivated a bad case of bulemia. But of course there are drawbacks. It’s destructive to his teeth and his breath isn’t exactly kissing sweet and his current relationship is suffering. But his body looks fantastic."

3) "Which celebrity has been doing massive quantities of coke to alleviate the pain of her sham relationship? For a while there, she seemed to have a charmed life: a talented partner, an adorable child, a hit TV series as well as forays into film. But as her fake relationship has crumbled, she has drifted deeper and deeper into the white stuff. Now it’s taken over her life. She is so thin and so unhappy, but her friends don’t know how to save both her and her public image."

Danja, producer for several tracks off "Blackout" ("Gimme More," "Break The Ice," "Get Naked"), describes a few of the new songs he's worked on with Britney for her 6th studio album "Circus" to Remixmag.com.

"I like that cinematic sound," Danja says. "I got a couple of tracks on Britney's [upcoming album] that sound like action sequences from The Mummy 3 or something, just bits and pieces of horn hits that make it sound dramatic."

"I'm in tune with certain chords that make you feel a certain way," the producer continues. "I know how to grab your emotions. I know what to play in whatever order to bring those feelings forth. This is a universal language. I'm learning how to capture those feelings and inject them into my music. I'm learning how to make you feel what I feel."

As for Danja's thoughts on Circus? "Way harder than Blackout."

Simon Pegg Calls Gervais a Big Fat Idiot


Press Assoc. - Tuesday, September 30 07:37 pm

Actor Simon Pegg has called Ricky Gervais an "idiot" and made a jibe about his weight.

Pegg is promoting his new film How To Lose Friends And Alienate People.

The comic actor was being interviewed on the radio by Jamie Theakston and Harriet Scott for London's Heart 106.2 when he made the remarks.

Pegg was asked by Scott if he, like Gervais, felt under pressure from the LA lifestyle.

Pegg responded: "He says a lot of things, that man.

"He said there'd been no good British films since 1950. What an idiot...

"If you go to LA, you can get sucked into that.

"I've seen people go there and suddenly become rake-thin because there is a slight pressure on you to be thin. I've seen a lot of fat people there."

Theakston commented that Gervais was apparently not receiving that kind of pressure.

Pegg said: "He's one of the fat people in LA, yes."


oh snap, I want to see these two throw down like the Colin Firth/Hugh Grant slap fight in Bridget Jones' Diary...

thanks, pnkhorn


**Simon responded to this article calling it bullshit.**

"So apparently I have "slammed" Ricky Gervais in the press as being a "fat idiot". Oh dear. Ricky's comments about the British film industry were definitely a little unfair but whatever I said on Heart FM was intended in the spirit of mutual teasing that myself Ricky have always indulged in. I am not in a position to genuinely accuse anybody of being fat, or for that matter of being an idiot. Whatever public feud is subsequently encouraged/fueled/blown out of proportion as a result of this, it is entirely the doing of those gleefully stood around clapping their hands and shouting "fight".

It is true however that we used to be lovers.


p.s. Ricky and I have laughed about this, although his initial response was "It's glandular you cunt."

Madonna Passes on Religion to David Banda

Taking a break from her massively successful Sticky and Sweet tour, Madonna was spotted taking her adopted Malawian son David Banda to a Kabbalah worship service last night in New York City.

And Madge made sure her little guy fit in with the rest of the crowd, placing a yarmulke on his head before going inside the temple.

Joined by producer Guy Oseary, the “Material Girl” songstress looked quite proper in a floral print dress underneath a black open-weave full-length duster sweater with vintage heels.

Madonna has always been forthright with her intentions to raise little David in the Kabbalah faith, though she says he’s free to worship as he chooses once he’s a bit older. She told press, “If David decides he wants to be a Christian, then so be it.”

Worker's strike hits Bollywood!!!! Big B and SRK support!!!!

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

All shoots are off!” Dinesh Chaturvedi, Head of the Federation of Western India Cine Employees (FWICE) which controls over 20 unions representing Bollywood workers, declared today when announcing the biggest strike to hit Bollywood in 50 years.

The indefinite protest, reminiscent of the recent Hollywood Writers’ strike, is about low wages, late payments and the persistent use of non-union actors. Although Indian cinema owners often revolt against perceived high cinema entertainment tax slapped onto admission prices, this is possibly the first time in Bollywood’s history that its workers have stopped work en masse. Chaturvedi added: “It’s within our rights to ask for better pay. A film worker gets 600 rupees (about £8) a day. The least the producers can do is pay them on time.”

Consequently, over 140,000 film workers failed to turn up for work on Wednesday 1 October. Bollywood A-listers, Amitabh Bachchan and Shah Rukh Khan, did not attend any shooting in possible solidarity as “all the top actors” are FWICE members. The result was that Bollywood came to a standstill: over 40 shoots cancelled; the major studios were deserted.

The post-Diwali release (October 28) of major films like Abhishek Bachchan’s ‘Dostana’, Shah Rukh Khan’s ‘Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi’ and Aamir Khan’s ‘Ghajini’ looks likely to be in jeopardy. This could result in huge losses during this lucrative festive period. Ratan Jain, President of the Association of Motion Picture and TV Programme Producers, said: “The walk out was not in the interests of the industry as a whole.”

‘The Promise’ is a Sixties-influenced pop gem given a contemporary Girls Aloud twist. Produced by Brian Higgins and Xenomania the song is about strong independent women who eventually relent and fall for the man they told themselves wasn’t right.

‘The Promise’ is taken from Girls Aloud’s forthcoming as-yet-untitled album due on November 3rd. The album will be the group’s fifth studio set and the follow up to last-years ‘Tangled Up’ album.

“We went back into the studio earlier this year and were probably the most excited we’ve ever been as we had just come off our biggest tour,” says Nicola Roberts. “We have always tried to experiment with different styles and ideas as it keeps us excited and keeps the fans guessing what we’re going to do next.”

‘The Promise’ is Girls Aloud’s 18th single release. Over the last six years Girls Aloud have had more top ten singles than any other girl group in the history of music. Their tally of 17 top 10 singles out of 17 releases has seen Girls Aloud beat the likes of The Supremes, The Spice Girls and Destiny’s Child into the record books.

Salma Hayek Steps Out With Her Ex – Again!

Salma Hayek Steps Out With Her Ex – Again!

L'amour, encore?

Salma Hayek hit the Balenciaga fashion show in Paris Tuesday morning with a very special guest. Her escort? Ex-fiancé Francois-Henri Pinault, the owner of the fashion house and father of her one-year-old daughter Valentina Paloma.

"[They were] very friendly together, looking happy," said one attendee. "They weren't holding hands but were definitely side by side."

The couple's public outing comes just weeks after they were spotted together in Los Angeles. It also caps a low-key week in Paris during which Hayek, 42, and Pinault, 46, have spent a great deal of time together privately. (Sources tell PEOPLE Hayek was introducing her daughter to Pinault's French relatives.)

On Thursday, Hayek and "F.H.P." (as friends call Pinault) had afternoon tea in the gallery of the Plaza-Athénée Hotel. "They seemed very comfortable," said an onlooker, "with Valentina playing on the couch between them."

And on Saturday, Pinault chauffeured Hayek and his young daughter away for a weekend outside the city.

After Tuesday's runway show (featuring works by Hayek's friend Nicolas Ghesquiere), the two returned to the Plaza-Athénée – where Valentina was waiting in the lobby.

"She came walking over and kissed Mommy and then she kissed Daddy," said an eyewitness. "It was very sweet."

Heidi Montag's Mom Fakes It, Too

"I'm sorry, Heidi. I don't mean to cry. It's just that you're such a massive failure. I don't know what else to do!"

Darlene Montag, the woman who birthed and raised the nightmare we know as Heidi. Darlene suffered through a one-on-one lunch with devilish Spencer, who was a complete and total ass to her ("I don't get uncomfortable, my dear") and then cried real tears for her lost cause of a daughter, claiming that Spence is the biggest d-bag that ever lived.

Except, you know, it was all fake. First off, Darlene showed up in this episode to "surprise" Heidi for her birthday. Heidi's birthday is Sept. 15. Darlene claimed she hadn't seen Heidi in months and had no idea she was living with Spencer. Please. It's not like she hasn't DVR'd every episode of The Hills and cut out each cheesy tabloid spread featuring Speidi to tape to her refrigerator. Also? If Darlene just showed up two weeks ago, how does she explain this, the photo shoot she had with Speidi and Joe Francis?

Me thinks this desperate need for the MTV cameras' attention runs in the family.

Tina Turner Blasts Aretha Franklin's Ego For Her "Queen" Reaction Back In February

Los Angeles, CA (CNS) - Music legend Tina Turner has finally spoken up about fellow diva Aretha Franklin's reaction when Beyonce Knowles called her a "queen" at the 50th Annual Grammy Awards earlier this year.

In February, the 68-year-old Tina returned on stage with R&B songstress Beyonce at the Grammys. Beyonce referred to her as "the queen," which prompted the offended Queen of Soul Aretha to react.

"Sister Ree" had said in a statement, "I am not sure of whose toes I may have stepped on or whose ego I may have bruised between the Grammy writers and Beyonce; however, I dismissed it as a cheap shot for controversy."

After more than 7 months, Tina finally has something to say about Aretha's command of R-E-S-P-E-C-T.

She was quoted by singersroom.com as saying, "Aretha has always been like that. We've always accepted that from her."

"She's the queen of soul and I'm the queen of rock n' roll. Her ego must be so big to think she was the only one."

Meanwhile, Tina is expected to go on tour starting on Wednesday through early December in the states before heading outside the country with "Tina Turner's North American Trek."

She said, "The Rolling Stones, Tina Turner, the Eagles, we are the Mozarts of these times, we're proving we can last. That's the statement I am making."


Jenny McCarthy Slams Amanda Peet Over Vaccines

LOS ANGELES — Actress and new mom Amanda Peet referred to parents who choose not to vaccinate their children as “parasites” in a recent interview. But despite her public apology aimed at parents of autistic children who believe that vaccines may have caused the illness, Jenny McCarthy hasn’t forgiven or forgotten.

"She (Peet) has a lot of [nerve] to come forward and be on that side, because there is an angry mob on my side, and I like the fact that I can say she's completely wrong,'' McCarthy (whose 6-year-old son has autism) tells the upcoming issue of Spectrum magazine, which hits stands Wednesday.

“I look at (Peet) now and say to myself, 'That was me before I had autism in my life,’ and until she walks in our shoes, she really has no idea," McCarthy added.

'Ugly Betty' vs. 'Desperate Housewives': Which show has the best new kid?

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Two of my favorite ABC series have gone the "add a child!" route, but in the battle between Desperate Housewives Juanita (Madison Lovato) and Ugly Betty's Daniel Jr. (Julian De La Celle), it's no contest (obvs)! Let's compare, shall we?

Fun: Overindulges in cake
Active: Hops on a city bus (alone!) to thwart Gaby's unsubtle exercise scheme
Playful: Engages in game of 'tag' with mom's convertible
Stylish: Rocks pink princess dresses
Bonus points: Likes her veggies covered in processed cheese

Daniel Jr.
Dreary: Refuses to eat meals
Passive: Locks self in room to thwart dad
Hostile: Sprays Betty with silly string, causing motorcycle crash
Frumpy: Long, floppy locks decidedly age-inappropriate
Automatic penalty: Whines in French

The winner: Juanita, by a landslide! (Even better, the kid has brought out a completely new yet totally hilarious aspect of Gaby's [Eva Longoria Parker] personality.)

Von Teese Fears Winehouse Will Follow Holiday's Tragic Life

Amy Winehouse once played a private gig for burlesque star Dita Von Teese - but the dancer was left troubled by the singer's angst.

Von Teese paid a visit to Winehouse's London home for an intimate two-hour show and was impressed with what she heard.

She says, "I will never forget the time I went to Amy's house and she sang and played guitar for me, my mother and sisters. She is our era's Billie Holiday."

But the 35 year old is concerned that the singer's personal troubles mirror those which destroyed her heroine, Holiday, who died at 44 from cirrhosis of the liver.

Von Teese adds, "I listen to a lot of music from the 30s and 40s, but Amy Winehouse is the most important and interesting vocalist of the modern era. Unfortunately, it seems that she is also following in the same footsteps as Billie - with genuine angst, drama and drug addiction."

Hai u guise, Kendra is emotional


The Girls Next Door household has been turned upside down lately, with Hugh Hefner confirming to Usmagazine.com last week that he and Holly Madison's relationship is "in transition."

"There are lot of changes going on ... people are going through changes," Kendra Wilkinson told Usmagazine.com at Saturday's Karu&Y Relaunch party in Miami. "There's a lot of rumors about me moving on, Holly
moving on ... it's really sad."

Wilkinson, 23 (who has denied reports she's engaged), continued: "I mean, it's only sad because Hef has to deal with it, and Hef gets really emotional because he really loves us.

"He is definitely a softie," she added, "so it's really sad seeing him go through this stuff."

Lucky for 82-year-old Hef, "he keeps it cool, and he has a lot of girlfriends around now to keep him happy," Wilkinson told Us.

The producers of the hit CW drama “Gossip Girl” keep on adding more sex appeal to the new season. And this time, it’s in the form of former “O.C.” actress Willa Holland.

Holland was joined by Taylor Momsen on the show’s New York City set yesterday (September 30) as they filmed scenes for a new episode.

Miss Momsen smiled for the paparazzi, sporting a flirty grey printed babydoll dress with black stockings, while Willa rocked a graphite minidress with a black cardigan and some funky fishnets.

Holland’s character Agnes was imported to the show to cause problems for Momsen’s Jenny Humphrey and her position at Eleanor Waldorf Designs. She’s scheduled for at least three episodes this season.

Dita Von Teese Celebrates Jean Paul Gaultier

“Movement is crucial. For me clothes on a hanger are just a still life,” Gaultier said after presenting his collection, which opened and closed with a performance by three dancers. “Dancers have a very interesting relationship with clothes…they have a way of appropriating them and giving them a different dimension.”

Aqualung says hello to the women and the men, remains random while doing so

hello men and women,

yesterday, i went to the US embassy in london and i wrote this on a small piece of paper:

"I'm just writing this in order to do something with my hands whilst i wait at the US embassy to have my visa interview. It's boring. I wish I'd brought a book. I nearly brought a book but i thought I'd get a paper and keep an eye on the end of the world but they don't sell papers here. Or magazines. So I'm just doing this. And now I've run out of space but

perhaps i could carry on on this side and that would give me more room. more to write. I must look impressively busy, like a guy with shit to do or perhaps an amazing idea for a book or a song or a film or an invention. or a cure for something. Sadly this is just a big nothing. Like a jar. Maybe i should try and think of something important to write about. maybe the FBI are watching me right now, waiting. Wondering what i Really Mean.....

In the queue outside the embassy was the singer from Keane*. There are always musicians at the US embassy. you can spot them - excitable young bands with great hair and 4 songs and a gruff tour manager, deadfaced professionals on their way to be angry in LA and"

then my number came up and i went and did it. that's all. just sharing....

*we had a little chat. i thought we should because we are connected. not only are we both ladyboys with ruddy cheeks but we have both been made to play john lennon's mellotron by jimmy iovine. which makes us brothers as far as i can see. i'm not sure he knew who i was. perhaps that's for the best.

So. Some Informations:

1.Words&Music by Aqualung (aka me) is coming out 7th October in the 'United' States.
It is available to preorder here!

2.It will be out in the 'United' Kingdom and various other bits of world early next year.

3.We're making a new website at aqualung.net.

4.it's got a pair of scissors on it.

5.I'm going/coming to America next week and doing a small number of small shows for small people (click the links to get ticket info):

10/9 New York Joe’s Pub
10/10 Brooklyn Union Hall
10/12 Philadelphia World Café Live
10/13 Boston Café 939 at Berklee
10/14 Chicago Schubas
10/15 San Francisco Swedish American Hall
10/16 Hollywood

6.I haven't really performed for a year, so that will be fun and awful all at once.

7.i hope some of you can make it along. it will be nice to catch up.

8. i may ask you to choose the songs i sing at the shows, so if you're coming have a little think about what you'd like to hear. (nb. I specialise in Songs by Aqualung).

That's all i can think of, and my daughter just woke up, and they're cutting down a tree in my back garden, and someone else is installing a new boiler so really, i should go.

She's NOT anal Anne

There’s a rumor going around that actress Anne Hathaway frankly discusses anal sex in an upcoming interview with Esquire Magazine. The quote, which is completely fabricated, is so amusing that there’s no way it can be true. Hathaway is incorrectly quoted as saying:

Anne reportedly says that “every woman should try it, otherwise they miss out on something amazing.” She also (allegedly!) speaks about the significance of the first time and how anal penetration makes her feel feminine in a “very special way.”

Is this true? Did Anne really say this?

Melissa Joan Hart Wishes She'd Had An Epidural (Bolded For The tl/dr Crowd)

"I told my mom and my husband, don't let me have [the drugs]," she told Usmagazine.com at the Celebration of Babies to benefit March of Dimes in L.A. Saturday.

"I kinda regret that one," she revealed.

"But the thing is, the healing was so much faster," the 32-year-old explained. "I didn't have to get the drugs out of my system and was moving around a lot more."

(Sabrina and Her Babies!)

Hart, who had "a lot of medical intervention" during her first delivery, told Us that having a natural childbirth motivated her.

"I labored at home for 9 hours and then went to the hospital for an hour and a half - two pushes and he was out," she said.

"When your feeling all that, you want to get that out as soon as possible, so you really work," she added. "You're like, 'I'm gonna push really hard but I'm only doing it once.'"

Braydon, born in March, is now 6-months-old. Hart and husband Mark Wilkerson also have a 3-year-old, Mason.

"They're just starting to relate to each other a lot," Hart told Us. "[Braydon] loves to laugh at his big brother and his brother loves to make him laugh."

So how did Hart lose her pregnancy pounds?

"Four weeks [after], I started feeling really good so I started going to the gym and started working out, went about three times a week," she told Us. "I got delivery food for a little while.

"What I did was make sure no Sprinkles cupcakes [were] in the house, no
candy," she said. "I got used to the no sugar so I was like ok, 'no starches.' I slowly started to get myself back on track and get my will power built up."

SAG Negotiating Committee Authorizes Strike Vote

LOS ANGELES (AP) ― The Screen Actors Guild negotiating committee has called for its board to support a strike authorization vote.


The committee adopted a motion Wednesday calling for the vote, saying it "is necessary to overcome the employers' intransigence."
Contract talks dealing with prime-time TV shows and movies have been at a standstill since it expired June 30 and actors have been working under the terms of the old deal.
A strike authorization vote would need the approval of 75 percent of the guild's some 120,000 members.


Thieves Break Into Hugh Laurie's House


HUGH LAURIE’S LA home was burgled while the British actor and his wife JO slept upstairs.
The thieves broke into the House star’s £2.2 million pad in the Hollywood Hills and stole his laptop.

The incident made the actor late for a TV interview the following morning.

He told the TV crew: “We were in bed when it happened.

“I came down this morning and said, 'Where's the laptop?' Then we realised.”

Police believe the burglary could be the work of a gang who have targeted other houses in the area.

Singer FAITH HILL and husband TIM MCGRAW, plus movie mogul SHERRY LANSING, have all recently been hit.

Hugh moved to LA in 2004 when he landed the role of Dr Gregory House, for which he is paid £220,000 per episode.

He is said to have been left shaken by the incident.

A friend said: “Hugh keeps thinking about what would have happened if he had woken up to confront the burglars.

“There are some crazy people in Los Angeles who don't think twice about using violence.

“He was very lucky that he slept through it all.”


Britney Spears looking gorgeous while greeting fans in the Bronx (October 1).

As part of her massive comeback effort, it seems Britney Spears is making an effort to connect with her younger fans. And this morning she dropped by a school in the Bronx borough of New York City to meet and greet students.

The “Gimme More” songstress looked bright-eyed and bushy-tailed as she sauntered around the school, sporting a navy blue v-neckline dress with brown high heels, posing with the police and signing autographs for the kids.

In related news, earlier this week Brit’s ex-boyfriend Adnan Ghalib came out to press with claims that he had a sex tape of himself and Spears, and that, for the right price, he’d consider selling it.

Ghalib stated, “There is such a tape, but I won’t discuss prices for hypothetical enquiries. Unless there is a locked-in deal, I will go no further.”

But a source close to the “Piece of Me” singer told press, “The story is completely false.”

New details on Blonsky/Golden fight


America's Next Top Model contestant Bianca Golden is speaking out for the first time about her July 29 airport scuffle with Hairspray star Nikki Blonsky.

On the October 8 episode of The Tyra Banks Show, she says she and her family were in Turks and Caicos to visit their grandfather who "was dying."

When they arrived at the airport, "Nikki Blonsky ... was very rude to my aunt," Bianca says.

"My aunt had two babies in her arms, and she told my aunt, 'You can leave. You can go away,'" Bianca recalls. "I was really upset by that because my aunt and I are close."

When Bianca spoke up, Nikki turned to her and said, "'You need to mind your business. You don't know what’s going on.' She went off," the model says. "There was a lot of words exchanged. I got really defensive."

Golden's mother, Elaine, then intervened, telling them both to calm down.

That's when Blonsky's father, Carl, approached her, Golden says.

"Before my mom could walk away from us, her father ... punched my mom," Bianca tells Banks. "He knocked her out. He hit my mom with such force she stumbled back, and when she stumbled back, the whole family got up and attacked my mom."

Bianca said Nikki then kicked her mother in the crotch.

I chose the title "Decode" because the song is about the building tension, awkwardness, anger and confusion between Bella and Edward. Bella's is the only mind Edward can't read and I feel like that's a big part of the first book and one of the obstacles for them to overcome. It's one added tension that makes the story even better." -- Hayley Williams, Paramore

Los Angeles (E! Online) - Nicole Kidman's night at Elle magazine's Women in Hollywood Tribute will be legendary—literally.

None other than silver-screen legend Shirley MacLaine will be presenting Kidman with her award at the upcoming VIP gala.

Along with MacLaine, I've also learned that Courteney Cox will present to Isla Fisher, while Mía Maestro will do the same for her best friend, Salma Hayek. Jane Fonda's tribute will come from Kerry Washington, her costar from the New York City reading of Eve Ensler's play Necessary Targets.

The event's host will be E!'s very own funnylady, Chelsea Handler.

Also being honored are Halle Berry, Sigourney Weaver, Anne Hathaway and Twilight director Catherine Hardwicke. Their presenters have not been announced.

The night will also mark the release of The Allure of Beauty: Women in Hollywood, a photography book collaboration between Elle and famed Italian jeweler Roberto Coin featuring iconic images of Hollywood's leadings ladies, including Charlize Theron, Julia Roberts, Cameron Diaz and Demi Moore, among many others.

More HBP pics.... random black girl alert.

According to the screen test reports, Harry flirts with this waitress in the beginning of the film just before Dumbledore picks him up at a cafe. If you wondering: I don't remember reading this shit? You're right, you didn't. This is a brand new made up scene by the resident douchebag Steve Kloves. FYI: This script writer is half way through writing the Deathly Hallows script. Ugh.

It's Official: Rosie's Headed to NBC Prime Time!

NBC is cooking up one juicy Thanksgiving appetizer for viewers this year: Rosie O'Donnell!

Nearly two months to the day since I brought you news of the Peacock-Ro talks, the polarizing funny lady has inked a deal with NBC to headline an hour-long variety show/backdoor pilot to air live in prime time on Thanksgiving eve, Nov. 26.

Appropriately titled Rosie's Variety Hour, the special will kick off with an incendiary topical monologue and feature celebrity guests, musical acts, comedy skits, and a "giant" giveaway for both the in-studio and home audiences.

“This is a dream come true for any performer," O'Donnell said in a statement. "Old time variety, live from New York with a nod to Ed Sullivan, Carol Burnett and memories of Sonny and Cher.”

For now, Rosie's Variety Hour is just a one-off special. But if this thing's a hit -- and, c'mon, how could it not be -- you can bet it'll become a regular fixture on NBC's schedule.

Reaction? Looking forward to seeing Rosie back in her element? Was NBC smart to test the waters with a special as opposed to, say, a 13-episode commitment? Wondering whether Ro will ply her prime-time audience with same complimentary Ho Hos and Hi-C she did her daytime? Sound off below!


More importantly - what about Jahero??
